Exporting & Importing Agents

Exporting and importing agents allows you to easily move your web data extraction agents between machines. You can also export your agent for back-up to another device. 

Exporting Agents

To export your agent, make sure you save your agent and have it open. Then from the File menu, select Export Agent. The following Export Agent pop-up window will appear on your screen.

Sequentum Enterprise's Export Agent facility enables you to package up all the associated files and folders into one file in a manner that is similar to a zip file. The default location for where agents are exported is the Documents > Sequentum Enterprise and Desktop > Agents folder on your PC.

You can also elect to Include internal data and/or Include export data into the export file by selecting the corresponding checkbox. Once you have made your selection, simply click the Export button.

You can export multiple agents at once using the Export Multiple Agents button in the Tools menu.

You can only import agents that have previously been exported from Sequentum Enterprise and previous Sequentum Enterprise and Desktop licenses.

To do this, select Import Agent from the File menu. The following Export Agent pop-up window will appear on your screen.
